Look at target player's hand, the top card of that player's library, and any face-down creatures he or she controls. Look at the top four cards of your library, then put them back in any order.

<p>Not english native please be kind to me ; plus if you find any language mistake or nonsense feel free to write it in the comment section and I'll correct it :)</p>

Welcome in my Duel Commander Deck that I've been working on and testing in tournaments for almost one year !

If you got kicked out by a player named "Senomar" playing Kumena on XMage it's me :)

===panel:<center>WHY MY FINGERS SMELL LIKE FISH ?</center>

<center>![](https://i.imgur.com/k0tpoJP.jpg)</center>

<center>

<p>I really like this deck for several reasons :</p>

<p>It's kind of out of the meta and the power of this deck often create a huge surprise effect when you combo off to create a board the opponent will never catch back or swing for a kill turn 4 or 5. Don't misunderstand ; the deck is not T1 and Kumena will never be. When you see that [[Anafenza, the Foremost]] is a 4/4 for [[symbol:3]] manas with nice abilities and offers 3 colors [[symbol:B]][[symbol:W]][[symbol:G]] without being T1, it's easy to understand that a 2/4 for [[symbol:3]] manas in the worst color combination of the format (simic : [[symbol:U]][[symbol:G]]) forcing us to play tribe will never be T1. I think Wizard poorly designed Kumena's body in order to protect the standard. Kumena should have been a 4/4 or at least a 3/4 to approach T1/2 (3/5 is too strong since it prevents a whole new range of removals such as [[Flame Slash]]). Seriously [[Feather, the Redeemed]] is a 3/4 flying for [[symbol:R]][[symbol:W]][[symbol:W]] (in boros colors !) ; why my green commander can't have a good body ? But the deck is strong. Damn strong.</p>

<p>The deck can win without [[Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca]]. Kumena is here for card advantage versus control, to stabilize aggro matchups due to his 2/4 body, to pump your folks to overcome huge boards sitting here and not daring to attack you or just to finish players with his evasive ability. Kumena does a ton of things ; he's kind of a small planeswalker. But the deck stay strong without him. Damn strong.</p>

<p>The deck has no really bad matchups where you can just auto give-up at start ! You have fair chance of winning against every commanders. I often end in the first tier of tournaments since the deck succeed well against most of the aggro meta such as mono red ([[Kari Zev, Skyship Raider]], [[Captain Lannery Storm]]...), winnie white ([[Kytheon, Hero of Akros]], [[Thalia, Guardian of Thraben]]...), boros ([[Tajic, Legion's Edge]]) or some partners. Of course some matchups are harder than others ; even on the aggro side. [[Arahbo, Roar of the World]] and [[Karlov of the Ghost Council]] are for example tougher matchups for me due to speed, removals and lifegain.
The deck has pretty fair matchups against "classic control" ([[Kess, Dissident Mage]] for example) and fast low interactions decks ([[Animar, Soul of Elements]]). To finish it struggles a bit versus combo/ramp decks or "Planeswalker control" because those decks abuse wrath effects ([[Aminatou, the Fateshifter]], [[Daretti, Scrap Savant]], [[Lord Windgrace]]...) other fish decks simply because they're T1 ([[Sai, Master Thopterist]] and [[Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow]]) and Mono Green ([[Surrak, the Hunt Caller]], [[Titania, Protector of Argoth]], [[Azusa, Lost but Seeking]] or [[Ezuri, Renegade Leader]]) can sometimes be a problem because they got the same speed and most of the time the mana to pay my counterspells conditions. To conclude, there is no easy matchups but there is no impossible matchups too ; because the deck is strong. Damn strong.</p>

<p>The deck requires a lot of skill and decision making due to the control and poker aspect of blue, the fact that most of the merfolks played in the first main phase could have an impact on the combat step and because midrange requires a lot of adaptation in your playstyle. You constantly have to gauge the level of interaction you want to have with your opponent depending on what deck you are facing, the amount of cards we have in hand and the amount of opened mana on the table. You will probably think it is the same for every decks ; but the synergy existing between creatures amplifies mistake penalties ; plus the abilities of Kumena always force you to choose between attacking or tapping. Against control decks you're fighting as much on cards advantage as on your amount of life. When you know your opponent has the removal in hand, it is sometimes better to draw by tapping 3 merfolks than dealing 4 dammages with two 2/2 creatures because the third have summoning sickness. Decisions are hard and make wins with our lord and savior Kuku even more crunchy ! Decisions make the deck strong. damn strong.</p>

<p>The balance between tall with cards such as [[Cosi's Trickster]], [[Deeproot Champion]] and so on ; and wide with [[Deeproot Waters]] and in general our low CMC curve creatures flooding the board comes enhance the already vast diversity of game plans and makes the deck strong. Damn strong.</p>

<p>Merfolks arts are freaking damn greats and some cards are just gorgeous. Damn gorgeous.</p>

===panel:<center>LET'S WEIGH THE FISH (current winrate : 52,5% - 22/10/2019) + EVOLUTIONS OF THE DECK</center>

<center>![](https://i.imgur.com/xSvJ9y7.jpg)</center>

<center>

<p>Since the begining of march I'm trying to record the performances of the deck. Here you can find the list of the games I've done on XMage, with friends or around some local events. Gonna try to make this live but my playtime is very heterogeneous and depends on my work :)</p>
<p>The mention "deck in progress" shows a lack of some key cards in the format or the fact that the decklist is being playtested. "A" means the list is meta but the opponent lack dual lands. "B" means the list is strong but the opponent lack few expensives key cards ([[Force of Will]], [[Three Visits]], [[Demonic Tutor]] are good examples) ; BTW I accept playing against proxy cards. "C" means the deck is barrely structured for the format.</p>
<p>The updated winrate of the deck is 52,5% without considering B and C decks. Keep in mind that some of the people I play against on XMage are players copy-pasting decks from MTGtop8 (because all cards are available for free in the software). Thus they got very strong lists but sometimes lack knowledges about how to play the deck. In addition, I'm far from being a pro player and after most of my defeats I realize the missplays I've done and figure how I could have win the game.</p>

<p>Please be careful about those charts. The amount of games is not high enough yet to have a proper winrate to study. It's mainly here to sum up the performance of the deck. In addition, matchups where we got enough datas are either popular and strong T1 commanders of the format ([[Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow]] and [[Sai, Master Thopterist]] are better fish strategies) or bad matchups ([[Atraxa, Praetors' Voice]] is a nightmare to me since vigilance negate tempo such as [[Harbinger of the Tides]]/[[Selkie Hedge-Mage]], [[Moat]] breaks my deck and the amount of wraths effect on superfriends versions just instabreak me). Furthermore, I have to reapeat this one more time, keep in mind that some of the people I play against on XMage are players copy-pasting decks from MTGtop8 (because all cards are available for free in the software). Thus they got very strong lists but sometimes lack knowledges about how to play the deck. In addition, I'm far from being a pro player and after most of my defeats I realize the missplays I've done and figure how I could have win the game.</p>

<p>Here you can find a list of cards that could fit well in the deck because they're merfolk centered or just because they're strong in the format. Of course most of those cards could fit in several categories at a time and I arbitrarily placed them in the category that seems to fit them the most.</p>

===spoiler:TOP 100 NOTABLE EXCLUSIONS : the cream of the foam
<p>This is the top 100 best cards I seriously hesitate to include in the deck or I already tried in the deck. Most of those cards could or had fit well in my list but when you have to choose among several good cards it's always a matter of taste. All of those cards are also present in their respective categories that fit them the most below this one.</p>

<p>IN -> [[Forest]] - [[Utopia Sprawl]] - [[Wild Growth]]</p>
<p>OUT -> [[Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx]] - [[Maze of Ith]] - [[Crop Rotation]]</p>
<p>Mana/color deaths feel responsible for a part too big of my defeats. Even if [[Maze of Ith]] could be a blast versus some matchups ([[Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest]], [[Arahbo, Roar of the World]], [[Karlov of the Ghost Council]], [[Rafiq of the Many]]...) I feel like more than half of the time I'd prefer to have a mana land and I find myself scrying, cycling it with loot effects or killing it on [[crop rotation]] in order to grab something else. [[Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx]] feels like it becomes useful to late in the game and even if it can do stupid things with my list I feel like I always prefer to have color mana rather than this land before turn 4 or 5. [[Crop Rotation]] was useful to catch the [[Maze of Ith]], [[Cavern of Souls]], [[Yavimaya Hollow]] or [[Path of Ancestry]]. Now [[Maze of Ith]] is not in the deck anymore and [[Baral, Chief of Compliance]] is banned, the loss of card advantage induced by [[Crop Rotation]] doesn't seem that strong if it's only to grab [[Yavimaya Hollow]] or [[Path of Ancestry]]. In addition of helping me on color, the [[Forest]], [[Utopia Sprawl]] and [[Wild Growth]] added to the deck will allow me to play [[Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca]] or the high amount of [[symbol:3]] CMC in the deck on turn 2. Furthermore it does some nasty things with [[Earthcraft]], [[Kiora's Follower]] or [[Merrow Reejerey]].

<p>IN -> [[Merfolk Skydiver]]</p>
<p>OUT -> [[Opposition]]</p>
<p>The new [[Merfolk Skydiver]] from War of the Spark seems really sweet. It is a better [[Gaea's Skyfolk]] since it has the flexibility of giving a counter to another creature if needed or being a 2/2 flyer, it matches with my +1/+1 subtheme and it has a good mana sink. In addition, this comes fill in my lack of strong turn 2. However the real question was what should I cut ? 99% of the duel commander playerbase will probably throw me a stone for cutting [[Opposition]]in a low curve creature deck with some untappers shenanigans (same than when I cut the [[Umezawa's Jitte]] long time ago). My feeling is that [[Opposition]] is a really strong card (basically a free win with [[Master of Waves]], [[Murkfiend Liege]] or [[Prophet of Kruphix]] or simply in some cases) but most of the time I'd prefer tapping my merfolks on Kumena's abilities or in order to attack. In addition I now reach a pretty high amount of evasive abilities thus I don't feel like I need to tap opponent creatures to hit him in the face. The 2 obvious parts of the card I'll be missing is first staxing them to death which I rarelly do since in control matchups my board is thin and versus aggro matchups I'm around the second part which is tapping opponent creatures in a defensive way while preparing for a big smash. Maybe this paragraph is just here because I need to convince myself I'm right to cut another T1 card for a poor uncommon :D ! Whatever, I'm gonna do some tries. To finish, now that the +1/+1 counter package seems consequent enough I'm seriously considering adding [[Vorel of the Hull Clade]] (seems a bit slow and the body is clunky) with some [[Umezawa's Jitte]] back and a [[Llanowar Reborn]].

<p>IN -> [[Merrow Commerce]] - [[Opposition]]</p>
<p>OUT -> [[Tempest Caller]] - [[Savage Summoning]]</p>
<p>I already had some tries with [[Merrow Commerce]]. I thought that playing this kind of enchantment turn 2 wasn't that great for a true aggro strategy. However I have to embrace midrange strategy and I miss the stupid things I can do with this card. Indeed, [[Merrow Commerce]] is a merfolk tribal sorcery. Thus it activates [[Deeproot Elite]], [[Forerunner of the Heralds]], [[Merrow Reejerey]], [[River Sneak]] or even [[Deeproot Waters]] and it can be used on [[Silvergill Adept]]. Furthermore the enchantment can be tap with [[Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca]] allowing us to make him unblockable, to draw with 2 merfolk creatures on the board or to start pumping our folks with 4 which often creates a huge surprise effect. To finish, it triggers at our end step when [[Murkfiend Liege]] and [[Prophet of Kruphix]] triggers on opponent's upkeep allowing us additional activations on [[Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca]], [[Earthcraft]] or [[Opposition]]. I feel guilty for having cut this last one and [[Merrow Commerce]] is the perfect excuse to put it back in the deck. Furthermore even if [[Moat]] and many land deaths are the principle reason for those loss during my last series versus [[Atraxa, Praetors' Voice]], the matchup told me to keep [[Opposition]] warm in my decklist. Back in the days where I was looking for non targeting +1/+1 counters cards because of [[Kira, Great Glass-Spinner]], [[Steely Resolve]] and [[Phantasmal Image]] I found [[Savage Summoning]]. This card is fun, strong and won me some games. However in many situations if you can't kill an opponent creature on combat tricks or if the ennemy plays removals in addition of counterspells it's pure card disadvantage. Furthermore in many cases I couldn't reach to curve it properly. With the entry of [[Merfolk Skydiver]] I feel like I already have enough +1/+1 counters in the deck to benefit from [[Zegana, Utopian Speaker]] (it was a nonbo with [[Savage Summoning]]), [[Benthic Biomancer]] or [[Hardened Scales]]. That's the reason why I chose to cut it. [[Tempest Caller]] is a blast and won me a lot of games but it's the second cut of the day ; mainly because [[Opposition]] can fill the spot on the long run, in order to keep my curve or because it was especially great with [[Savage Summoning]].

<p>IN -> [[Ash Barrens]]</p>
<p>OUT -> [[Forest]]</p>
<p>After 2 consecutives games stuck on green and a general feeling of overgreen manas I decided to cut another forest in order to put [[Ash Barrens]] in. With [[Earthcraft]], [[Utopia Sprawl]] (even [[Daze]] or [[Selkie Hedge-Mage]]) and the amount of [[Blood Moon]]/[[Magus of the Moon]] in the meta I need a high amount of basic lands. However I can't risk to get stuck on green especially with the number of [[symbol:U]] and [[symbol:U]][[symbol:U]] in the deck. Simic lack some key lands and [[Ash Barrens]] seems to be the perfect tool in this color combination to avoid color deaths, to get basic lands fast and to avoid loosing life with lands such as [[Mana Confluence]] or [[City of Brass]].</p>

<p>IN -> [[Waterlogged Grove]] - [[Prismatic Vista]] - [[Force of Negation]]</p>
<p>OUT -> [[Snow-Covered Forest]] - [[Snow-Covered Island]] - [[Jungleborn Pioneer]]</p>
<p>It's been a long time that I was hoping for lands as cool as [[Waterlogged Grove]] and [[Prismatic Vista]]. Color struggling is something that I often experience in the deck since it combines cards that require a lot of basic lands and/or forests/islands ([[Utopia sprawl]], [[Selkie Hedge-mage]], [[Earthcraft]], [[Daze]] and so on) and half the deck is made of heavy coloured cards ([[Coralhelm Commander]], [[Lord of Atlantis]], [[Wistful Selkie]]...). Having 2 new dual colors untap lands is a dream. Furthermore, especially since the first one have the same draw effect than [[Horizon Canopy]] which is well known as an insanely good card and the second can fecth exactly what I need in the deck : a basic land. I am wondering if the additional fetch effect plus the land sacrifice trick should makes me run a 38th land but for the moment I'm going to try it this way. There is no need to explain why [[Force of Negation]] is an auto inclusion in the deck (I love the hard cast cost by the way) but I'd like to talk about why [[Jungleborn Pioneer]] was in the deck. People tend to think [[Jungleborn Pioneer]] is a bad card. In a Kumena list it is the exact opposite. Throwing 2 merfolks on the board with a single card is insanely good with merfolk lords, [[Kumena Tyrant of Orazca]] or [[Earthcraft]], the hexproof on the token can turn a game with the +1/+1 counters subtheme and the fact that people underestimate [[Jungleborn Pioneer]] allow safe play on turn 3 when the opponent is sitting on a counterspell/removal ; allowing us to cast [[Kumena Tyrant of Orazca]] on turn 4 with a [[symbol:1]] CMC counterspell backup or something like [[Blossoming Defense]]. I have hesitated a lot with cutting [[Misdirection]] or [[Spell Pierce]] mainly in order to keep the same amount of counterspells in the deck which seems to be the right number in order to deal with both control and stabilize aggro matchups. I'm going to do some tests once I purchase those cards and see.</p>

<p>IN -> [[Brineborn Cutthroat]] - [[Swift Warden]] - [[Savage Summoning]] - [[Stifle]] - [[Opt]] - [[Peek]] - [[Snow-Covered Island]]</p>
<p>OUT -> [[Forerunner of the Heralds]] - [[Ponder]] - [[Preordain]] - [[Utopia Sprawl]] - [[Wild Growth]] - [[Earthcraft]] - [[Mirri's Guile]]</p>
<p>Since the spoil of [[Brineborn Cutthroat]] I have done quiet a lot of changes in the deck. There is no need to justify why I put this new merfolk in the deck but let’s talk about the other changes. I’m not changing the list especially for this merfolk but its release made me think about instant speed tricks and I wanted to boost them a bit. Why ? Because it's fun ! To begin with, I have no real answers in the deck (I’m talking about removals) thus [[Ponder]] and [[Preordain]] were mostly here to find a kill, a backup counterspell or 90% of the time to be sure I hit my land and I curve well. There is no doubt those cards are extremely powerful but I feel like passed turn 1 I’d rather have a less powerful effect like [[Opt]] but to be abble to keep an opened mana for the large amount of [[symbol:1]] mana instant tricks I run in the list ([[Blossoming Defense]], [[Force Spike]], [[Spell Pierce]], [[Spell Snare]]…). [[Utopia Sprawl]], [[Wild Growth]] and [[Earthcraft]] are extremelly powerful cards too and as I already stated in the previous « LIST CHANGES » it allows me to play [[Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca]] on turn 2 or just vomit my whole hand with untappers shenanigans. On other hand, I find it extremelly frustrating to draw those tools past your opening hand and it happens a lot even with the amount of scry/loot/explore I got ; plus if I haven’t a mana sinker like [[Merfolk Skydiver]] on the board, the speed given is generally catch by the card disadvantage and the fact that the cards I use to break the game are creature centric or require more than just a large amount of mana to work ([[Deeproot Waters]], [[Opposition]], [[Murkfiend Liege]], [[Master of Waves]], [[Prophet of Kruphix]]…). To finish, [[Forerunner of the Heralds]] is strong but as I stated before it feels slow, it’s expensive and it does nothing the turn it arrives ; with the reduction of ramp I wanted to tone a bit my curve. To finish with inclusions, it’s been a while I haven’t played the several cards I listed and I missed the fun I had with them. Most of them are what I call unexpected shenanigans. Just like [[Misdirection]] they’re strong cards especially because they see few play in the format and create huge surprise effects. [[Savage Summoning]] (which allows me to keep the same amount of +1/+1 counter cards with the withdrawal of [[Forerunner of the Heralds]]) and [[Stifle]] are tricky to play because they require a trade to be valuable in term of card advantage. But it’s so cool to flash the fifth merfolk to pump them all with Kumena before your turn, to flash a [[Wake Thrasher]] with an islandwalk lord on your next main phase versus control or to stifle the first fetch versus 3+ colors decks ! [[Peek]] is here for the cantrip effect at instant speed and to help me decide my strategy ; [[Swift Warden]] because a 3/3 body at instant speed is good and if it can save one of my merfolk in some situations it’s even better and I replaced [[Mirri's Guile]] with another [[Snow-Covered Island]] to help me curve out and because the consistancy brings by this enchantment doesn't always worth the card disadvantage induced. With those changes I expect the deck to be a bit better versus control, generally maybe a little worst versus every other matchups but fore sure funnier :)</p>

<p>IN -> [[Mana Leak]]</p>
<p>OUT -> [[Swift Warden]]</p>
<p>I don't really want to keep increasing the amount of counterspells in the deck but in a lot of situations having a [[Mana Leak]] in hand feels way more fine and way less situational than having a [[Swift Warden]]. Easier to curve and better than an instant speed 3/3 against low interaction decks where there is few removals. Furthermore I got some deceptions in the past days that the hexproof effect couldn't target my [[Edric, Spymaster of Trest]] or my [[Prophet of Kruphix]].</p>

<p>During my last games I had quiet a lot of mana deaths and I feel like having another land in the pack could be useful. [[Fabled Passage]] is nice since the fetch effect prevents me from flooding in late game. Seeing the amount of fetch effects I have now ; I hope one day they'll make some landfall merfolk ! Maybe I'll have a try on [[Retreat to Kazandu]] or [[Retreat to Coralhelm]] but it feels slow without ramp in the format and with my game plan. I had quiet some nice combos with [[Wake Thrasher]] and [[Savage Summoning]] or unblockable stuff like [[Lord of Atlantis]]/[[Master of the Pearl Trident]]/[[Merfolk Sovereign]]. But it's time to say goodbye to the turn 3 drop that does nothing the turn it arrives in addition of being a 1/1 and being easily chumpblockable once it's big.</p>

<p>OUT -> [[Psionic Blast]] - [[Snow-Covered Island]] - [[Forest]]</p>
<p>[[Oko, Thief of Crowns]] is just busted... he can negate an entire deck by transforming a commander into an elk 3/3. And who is really good to block a 3/3 without killing it ? [[Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca]] my dear (my deer ?) ! I hope He won't get banned since the card cost me a kidney and it's the first time ever we have a good planeswalker in simic. [[Psionic Blast]] won me quiet some games and it is really strong. But the 2 life it costs is often too much to bear and it can't kill a planeswalker. Furthermore, I assume blue is not the color to blast and I think that stubbornly trying to blast 4 life for 3 manas with 2 life downside is bad when you compare it to a [[Lightning Bolt]]. [[Minamo, School at Water's Edge]] is here now just because it's been a long time I haven't get rekt by a [[Blood Moon]] or a [[Magus of the Moon]]. The synergy with Kumena is pretty sweet. It's been a long time I'm looking for a spot to try again [[Umezawa's Jitte]]. I'm going to try this on a land spot.</p>

<p>OUT -> [[Snow-Covered Forest]] - [[Wistful Selkie]] - [[Selkie Hedge-Mage]]</p>
<p>With my several research on meta decks curves I want to try to lower a bit more mine. The question was which turn 3 should I cut and it was really tough. Those 2 selkies seem to be the weakest/slowest. Both of them can have huge impact on the game : [[Wistful Selkie]] is a good card against opened mana to counterspell my Kumena and is a blast when you curve on a [[Master of Waves]] turn 4. [[Selkie Hedge-Mage]] with both conditions is as huge as a [[Thragtusk]] to tempo aggro decks. Now that I cut [[Selkie Hedge-Mage]], [[Earthcraft]] and [[Utopia Sprawl]] there is no real need to keep an amount of [[Forest]] that high. Welcome [[Mana Confluence]] !</p>

MtG-Crash on [PDH] Tatyova Combo

1 week ago

1) Yeah, you really gotta know the combo and all of its ins and outs. Every version of it. The deck is a straight combo deck and tries to combo off as fast as possible and as reliable as possible. There is no grind, even though in 1v1 you can put your opponent into a softlock with Deprive + Mystic Sanctuary. So grindy things have no place in this deck. It is a combo deck in a controlish shell and Tatyova is the key card.

2) Reap&Sow has been in the deck in the past until I replaced it with Spoils of Victory , which puts Sanctuary in play untapped for 3 mana. If you feel like you need more tutors for Sanctuary, then go for Reap&Sow, but Sanctuary is actually the combo piece that is the easiest to find.

3) The card-selection cards you are talking about are not good in my opinion. Only Pieces of the Puzzle is something that I like and I have that card in my mind for a few weeks now. I do not think that you always have a land in hand and I do not think this deck is "pretty graveyard based anyway". Yes, the combo only works through the graveyard, and yes, sometimes you get back an important piece from your graveyard. But in no way do we rely on having a lot of things in the graveyard nor do we have a lot of ways to take an advantage from that. Treasuire Cruise and Far Wanderings are the only cards that profit from that. About the having a card in hand thing: When you play against players who know how your deck works and they have interaction and everything (counterspells, removal, ...), then you cannot just slam Tatyova on like Turn4. You will always lose these games. You only do that if your hand tells you that you wont have any other plays for the next turns if you dont slam Tatyova. But in general you want to ramp until like 7 mana in teamgames, so you can protect Tatyova at least one turn and untap with her. And when you do that, you wont have lands left in your hand. Having lands in hand because you have cast Tatyova on like Turn3/4 without any protection up is more kind of a goldfish thing. In pratice you'll hope to hit like 7 lands or more before slamming Tatyova. So if you get stuck on like 5 mana and have no lands in hand anymore and no ramp spells in hand, than you usually lose. Btw the card I did not try out but have considered to do so for quite a while now is Spy Network . That card looks 4 cards deep, tells you against which cards of your opponent you gotta have to play, and is super cheap. I think that card is the best not self replacing card selection. And I still couldnt find a slot for it. But its close, because I value the knowledge of the opponent's hand very high.

4) At start I also thought that it gets better the earlier I drop Tatyova. And in 1v1 that is actually kind of true. But in teamgames you gotta play the whole way around. In teamgames you have to slam Tatyova as late as possible but still getting value from it. People wont focus you that hard, and people will start to tap out for their own stuff. The earlier you drop Tatyova in a team game, the more interaction you will draw to you, because people want to slow you down and dont have anything else important to do nontheless, so they like to spend their turn to remove Tatyova. Grazer and Pioneer have been in my very first iterations, and yes, they actually delivered Turn3 Tatyova more often, whereas my list almost never casts Tatyova on Turn3, but rather on like Turn4, or Turn 5 with a counterspell up. And this is the way to go. I also thought that Grazer and Pioneer might be solid FLicker targets as well, but then again, you are thinking about grinding and gaining a few values here and there, but thats not what a fast combo deck is what it wants to do. You dont want to cast Ghostly Flicker on a Grazer. You want to keep up Flicker to protect Tatyova and basically try to kill next turn.

5) Cloud of Faeries is a strange one. Mainly it is just redundancy to High Tide / Peregrine Drake. The absolut main combo line is to get Tatyova, Sanctuary, Ghostly Flicker and either High Tide / Peregrine Drake or Cloud of Faeries + Growth Chamber. This is the most important thing about this deck. From there on you can find a lot of different ways to find into the full combo or replacing parts of it. For instance, Tatyova + Sanctuary + Ghostly Flicker already reads "pay 1 mana, gain 2 life and draw a card". That on its own is super strong and you will find the last missing piece (High Tide / Peregrine Drake / Cloud+Chamber) from there quite easily. Cloud of Faeries even enables infinite mana without Tatyova, Sanctuary and Ghostly Flicker: Displace + Cloud + Archaeomancer + High Tide already give you infinite mana. You'll still need carddraw, but infinite mana is a big help (Capsize likes that, or just a huge Temporal Fissure). And just a second Archaeomancer-like Body like Srivener already lets you recycle any Instant / Sorcery as often as you want. So Displace + Cloud + Archaeomancer + Scrivener + High Tide is infinite mana + infinite recursion of all instants /sorceries in your graveyard. So basically, Cloud of Faeries is a weaker Peregrine Drake that needs a bit more help, but redundancy is important! Also keep in mind that the "mana acceleration" part of the combo (that is Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake and High Tide) is the hardest to find. You cannot tutor for Peregrine Drake, you can only tutor for Cloud of Faeries with Muddle the Mixture, and High Tide is easier to find, but it takes a lot of mana to do so. For instance you would transmute Muddle the Mixture for Merchant Scroll, then cast Merchant Scroll for High Tide. But sometimes you dont have the Mana and Cloud of Faeries works as good, so you can go for Cloud of Faeries. So redundancy is everything and the mana acceleration part is the toughest to find.

Heyo

R/U always has issues with enchantments, thats just a handicap that those colors have, and you dont have much in the way of answers honestly. Aside from Chaos Warp, you are basically relying on blues ability to counterspell/bounce for these things. Yes its rough, but hey, you wanted a challenge, right? ;)

There are ways to dissuade people from attacking you, although if you are wanting to stick to inst/sorc, its pretty limited. Illusionist's Gambit, Disrupt Decorum, and weird stuffs like that can offer temporary protection while being instants. Otherwise, you are looking at adding more artifacts and enchantments that will protect and dissuade attacks. Collective Restraint is a shitty propaganda here, Meekstone can slow things down but doesnt solve token threats well, and Dissipation Field taxes pretty good but can allow your opponents to re-use ETB creatures n stuff. Bonfire of the Damned could be added to your burn list, since it shouldnt be hard to get it on the top of your deck when you need it. Volcanic Vision is also a good add.

Metallurgic Summonings, Goblinslide, and the pyromancer are decent chump blocker engines. Summonings is an alt wincon even :D

As far as ramping goes, there is a lot of static ramp effects for inst/sorc. You have quite a few in your SB already, and Id suggest adding a few if you are intending on doing a lot of spellcasting each turn. I would not suggest arcane melee however, its symmetrical effect can be rough I have found.

If you are wanting to keep all of that artifact ramp in there though, I would suggest switching some around for draw effects, such as Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone, ect, as they can be very useful drawing past non-inst/sorc when needed.

Its hard to get any decent lifegain in these colors and without much in the way of creatures. I mean, Basilisk Collar is probably your best bet...? haha

More copies are are good, and Cast Through Time and Swarm Intelligence do it for free.

Random secret tech, Bosium Strip.

Final advice, run more topdeck manipulation. If you want to be all tricksy, run a bunch of the instant ones to make some super convoluted stacks with Melek out. It can get pretty nutso.

Impulse, Spy Network, Trickery Charm, and Telling Time are probably the go-to cards for that. Otherwise theres a bunch of sorcery ones, must haves being Ponder, Preordain, and the MVP Mystic Speculation. Portent and Index also pull their weight here. But if you want to be more proactive with your topdeck manipulation, theres stuff like Discombobulate, Condescend, and Fated Conflagration.

I am a little concerned about your card draw abilities. I think you should invest in Divination and maybe Spy Network. Notion Rain and Stealer of Secrets may also prove useful.

I hope these suggestions have helped and as always, you have made one heck of an evil deck.

Rzepkanut on Yennet & odd top-of-deck cards

I would strictly run odd numbered cmcs on every card in the deck so you never whiff. If you have enough enablers like the aforementioned cantrips, and maybe Sensei's Divining Top, Soothsaying, Spy Network, Portent, etc.. you should have no problem cheating out Void Winnower and whatever else you want. If you get hated on in your group too much for this strategy to work or just can't help cracking fetch lands as soon as you draw them, those are other issues. I personally wouldn't run any even cmc cards to "fix" that situation.

May I suggest Ray of Revelation in place of Seal of Primordium? I really like this deck, and mill I think is a very interesting strategy. I'd like to see some more ways to look at the top cards of your opponent's library, so you know when to mill effectively. Example: Spy Network, Dewdrop Spy, and Portent. These are of course not necessary, but if you want to eventually run more milling spells then these would be very efficient at telling you when to use your mill spells to get certain things in the graveyard.
